Pardon Our Progress!

Throughout 2021, Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park will complete a number of road repairs and construction projects. Although these projects will improve park facilities and enhance the visitor experience, they will create temporary road and facility closures. We appreciate your patience and understanding throughout the construction period.

Are you a frequent park visitor? Bookmark this page and check back for the latest closure updates. Changes in the schedule due to weather or other reasons will be updated here.

Expect delays and road construction throughout the park with temporary traffic control.
